Hey @grove den , it has been quite some time since we have seen you wonderful modeling.  What have you been up to lately?  Any more wonderful trees?  Shrubs? Ground cover?  I love to see it.

Hello peteski and all the other members of this forum...;-)
I am still making modelltrees ... but mostly they all look  the same as seen in the pictures in this thread! that is what trees do mostly too in real!
Right now I am working for a public layout in Germany called: "Modellbundesbahn" , about 2000 trees and the same amount of shrubs and bushes...
I wont be boring for the next months....
Iam also trying to modell Eastern red Cedars ( as windbreaks)
Still experimenting with the look of the foliage....still not content about the look.

One of the eyecatchers of the public layout in Germany: an old oak in which a small
roadsign : dead end street, was  "absorbed"by the tree during many years....
It all starts with a big b......   unch of floristic wires!

Yeah, I'm going to need a boatload of trees similar to these.  :scared:  Beautiful work.  I'm not worthy.

Hi Jos. Thanks for giving us an update.  I'm glad that you are still making those beautiful trees.

I can't imagine making 2000 trees, then shrubs and bushes to the same level of detail you do.  That would be very tedious to me (that is if I could make them at all).  :)

"...and now something completely different! "
The absence of trees.... :o
The foresters did a "great"job....(??)

Hope to built some trees during a clinic on a modellrailroad exhibition at the end of the month!  ;)

No matter what your modeling is depicting (vegetation or absence of vegetation), the results always looks very realistic!

Those are some really nice trees! Modeling in Z, I would need a whole lot of foreground trees just to hide my bamboo skewer and bottle brush pine trees in the background.  :lol:
If you see it, get it, for tomorrow it may be gone!
Oh, and most importantly...NEVER do today what can safely be sloughed off till tomorrow!

Bottle brush pinetrees 8)...
Well with an electrostatic fibre gun it's a "piece of cake"!!
Actualy you too make -a kind of- "bottle brush on a small thin piece of a floristic wire...cut the fibres in a conical shape...add some 2 mm fibres and finaly sieved fine turf weeds or green grass.
The pine trees below are max.! 2 inches "tall"

Also small trees can be made the same way:
The preiserman is H0 21 mm= almost one inch

Last picture is how I made those 16 small pine trees " mass produced";-)

Just made some small pine/firtrees, about max 2 inches( with a teaspoon to compare.... ;) )
vezeldennetje 2 by Jos Geurts, on Flickr
I used a rather to thick floristic piece of wire...( 1,4 mm)
When using half the diam. the results are more satisfying . With a white background you can see this "fault"to easy!
